Great site Rusty! I like your no nonsense approach to fitness. I’ve got the same kind of philosophy.

Hi Rusty.

Just wanted to say thanks for the recent emails. It’s good to see you sharing information again. Read Nate Myaki’s post and it was well worth the read.

All the best

Hi Rusty,

My boyfriend bought me your e-book Visual Impact for Women. I’m excited to start the workout, however I have a question about working your butt. I understand that your program doesn’t focus specifically on the butt, and that cardio will work your butt, hips, and thighs. If anything I want to reduce the size of my thighs, so I’ll be trying your tips on “losing muscle mass on purpose.” However, I’m a 5’5″-5’6″ 165 lb girl and everyone always tells me they can’t believe I weigh that much. I guess I carry my weight the way kim kardashian does: very busty and hippy/thick legs, but defined waistline. My question is, I do want to to be slimmer and tighter all over, I’m a size 10-12 and would like to be about a size 4-6. I’m looking to lose about 35-40 lbs, but keep my same shape. I’m worried with losing that much weight that I’ll straighten out or lose my curves, especially my butt. How do I slim all over, without losing the nice fullness of my butt? Do I just need to lose the weight more slowly? Over 3, 4, 5, 6 months?

Thanks,
Gabriella

Hi Rusty I have the same question as Eugene. I bought Visual Impact and will be starting Phase One on Monday. My question is when you say 2 days on then 1 day rest then 1 day on…is that it for the week?
Conventional wisdom would say “yes” but there’s nothing in the program that tells me whether I just restart the routines after that cycle within the same week.
Would appreciate it if anyone could answer this as I’m training on a time goal (wedding) and I don’t want to waste a single week.
Thanks,
-Rhys

Rusty. Visual impact has given me a clarity and insight into how to accomplish what I have sought after for years. Thanks for keeping it real!

I have a question that I have been turning over in my head. Your plans emphasize workout and cardio on an empty stomach. 3 hours before and one hour after. However I have always been taught that you should try to eat a good breakfast as soon as you wake up to start your metabolism. My question is: Is it better to get up and eat first thing or get up, hit your routine, and then wait an hour after and eat breakfast. Or is it better to have breakfast and work out later?

Your thoughts would be appreciated

Thanks for the outstanding work you do!

An Advice, Really Important For You To Know Rusty.
It’s always good to know those things in such details, but before something was mentioned about abs and back exercises that leads to pains and injuries. How to avoid is by actually doing the rep accurately, for example doing a crunch or sit-up you should never bent your spinal, it must be straight, about 180 degrees while the chin is tuck forward and the pushing force source is from abs and pulling back at the start point by buttlocks. Changing any detail effects the abs so that’s why for some people it only targets the upper and first 2 pack while others get 8 pack abs by a bit of sit-up. Might be a bit difficult to straighten your legs, but a must so that the center of mass is balanced to the center of your body and you don’t need to crush your spinal for a rep. It’s ok for flexibility, will develope later, by pointing your toes it will get a bit better. Remember Rusty, you’ll have to keep you spinal straighten whole the time; neither n nor u shape. Just the l.

Hi Rusty,

In the past I purchased your VIMB. I love the knowledge and agree with you I follow your blogs. You really preach the truth that other people just don’t know for some reason. I am a model and really need my lower abs to come in and be as defined as possible without losing all my muscle as I have a very important photoshoot coming up very very soon. I AM SO EXCITED you FINALLY have a diet book. I have also read intermittent feast and am a fan for Nate Miyaki so excited for his new book to come out as well. I would like to ask you what type of workout plan would compliment your new diet book that is about to come out in order to be photoshoot ready ASAP? And I mean ASAP! I am so clueless with diets and workout frequency (amount of volume and days in a row) as with photoshoots coming up I feel bad not exercising everyday because I would hate to not be ready. I am a big fan Im so mad because I thought you said it was coming out today! =) Please get back to me, and keep up spreading the TRUTH! I have recommended your work to family and friends and I must say many people have it all mixed up, but after this coming photoshoot this will be the ultimate bomb on their wrong concepts as I am hoping to demonstrate a noticeable change I will give all the credit to you so they will try and be more open to the ideas you present like in VIMB. Hope to hear from you soon! (BTW I use to be a fellow Seattlite myself).

Thank you,

Omar
